treasury secretary tim geithner said he figured out a way to keep the government defaulting on the debt for two months? not so fast. a new analysis by the bipartisan policy center says the u.s. may default a month earlier than expected. they say the government will likely run out of money to pay its bills between february 15th and march 1st. we hit the $16.4 trillion debt limit on december 31st. the treasury department said they were taking "extraordinary measures" to put off default. the debt ceiling debate is set to be the next big showdown in washington. both republicans and democrats have vowed to hold firm in their position. >>> and speaking of government spending, a report published monday says the obama administration spent $18 billion on immigration enforcement last year, more than on all the other federal law enforcement agencies combined and 15 times greater than immigration spending in 1986. the nonpartisan research group the migration policy institute says immigration has become the government's highest law enforcement priority. among those likely to be unhappy with that rep

. >>> president obama has more spots to fill in his cabinet, tim geithner is expected to leave sometime around the nomination. there's a vacancy at the cia since general david petraeus stepped down. a source tells cnn a short list includes counter terrorism and homeland security adviser john brennan as well as acting cia director michael mother el, the man wearing the red tie in the video. >>> the attorney for one of the two ohio teenagers charged with rape wants a judge to postpone and move his clients trial. the 16-year-old high school football players are charged with sexually assaulting a girl last summer. the alleged attack took place at several parties over the course of the night. adam told cnn he wants the case moved out of steubenville. >> given its publicity and what we perceive as threats to individuals, perhaps witnesses and also defendants and defense council, we're concerned about safety issues at this point. secondly i'm concerned about whether or not the kid should be tried in this area. perhaps the fact that it is in the steubenville area is it's going to prohibit certain peop
treasury secretary. tim geithner is the last original member of the president's economic team. he leaves as three major deadlines loom. by end of february, the treasury will lose the power to borrow more to pay america's bills. across the board spending cuts to every federal program kick in on march 1. the government will run out of all congressional funding by the end of march. the current chief of staff is expected to inherit those headaches as geithner's replacement. president obama promised quick action on vice president joe biden's proposals on new gun control laws following the shootings in newtown, connecticut. >>> in newtown, connecticut, they are being overwhelmed by donations. though town officials said they have more than they can handle, toys, school supplies and other gifts keep pouring in in the wake of the massacre newtown now has a warehouse to hold the items being trucked in every day. a task force will figure out how to deal with all of the donations. >> people just want to feel like they're doing something. >> yes. >>> as we have reported the obama administration is pr
of staff jack lew of management and budget is considered to be tim geithner's most likely successor and that's deputy national security adviser denis mcdonough. anything could change, but those could be the most likely picks. other members of the administration suggest they're heading for the exits and you would assume the stuff starts ranking up in the next week or so. lisa jackson announced her departure at the end of january and rebecca blank who took over in june after secretary bryson went on medical leave. also expected to leave ray lahood and ken salazar and steven chu. likely with appointments of lew and mcdonough you'll hear more voices demanding more diversity in that cabinet, if you will. how does the president end up solving that problem and create a cabinet that, "looks like america." >>> all right, picking a fight over the president's pentagon pick. one thing the left and the right can agree on. chuck hagel may have an uphill battle in the senate. next, we'll get the view from both sides. former romney campaign adviser dan seymour and dan clemens will be here for a deb

to chuck hagel. no change in diversity there. cia director from petraeus to john brennan, no change. tim geithner to jack lou, no change there. john kerry is nominated to replace secretary of state hillary clinton, that's one less woman, the possible replacement with ashton carter, one less minority. and head of the epa lisa jackson, the first black woman to hold that title, her replacement is unknown. of hundreds of senior appoint ees and nominees, 48% were minority or women according to the national journal. and 13 out of 22 of his first cabinet members were diverse. that's a record. but it's not only about ethnicity and gender, the president could potentially nominate the first openly gay cabinet member. he could choose more with business executive experience. his team head count dropped 25% on that measure. age diversity is an issue too. right now two-thirds of obama's team are baby boomers. history shows cabinet choices have lasting effects, madeleine albright's nomination was followed by 15 years of diverse secretaries of state. farther back, president lincoln's cabinet strategy as

is nominated to replace tim geithner. i want to get into the gun control. the results of the rasmussen poll, 51% of americans now support stricter gun laws. when asked would posting an armed guard in every school makes schools more safe, 48% said yes and 53% said they would feel safer with an armed guard at school versus no adults with guns. castigatederre was cassty for suggesting that. >> the american people are quite smart in that poll. wayne la pierre was saying armed guards instead of controls on guns. the american people are more supportive of gun control. you know, if you go back and you look at studies and you impact of gun control. there aren't a lot that show that it works in it terms of celling violence. there is one case where it did work and that is australia where are there was a mass shooting in the '90s. 35 tourists were killed and they put in an assault weapons ban that was much stricter than it was here and did a buyback program. politically i agree it would be tough sledding here but at least get a lot of those guns that put multiple bullet holes in the children at newtown ou
that, if you remember in the discussions about the fiscal cliff when tim geithner delivers to the republicans the initial offer they don't come back with a counteroffer that says if you want those revenues we want entitlement cuts. they then say to the administration "we want you to propose entitlement cuts so we can turn around and say look you proposed entitlement cuts." so i don't know which it is. i know that in the long run all the economists are going to agree what the root of the challenge. is it's the aging of the the population, rising health care costs and we don't have the tax revenue to cover that. it's not based on excessive spending on food stamps. it's not based on discretionary spending. that is not what the problem is. >> rose: david? >> i think it's significant if republicans have decided they want this next round to be about entitlements rather than spending. because there is no solution in discretionary spending. >> rose: exactly. >> there's not enough money there. >> rose: everything knows that, don't they? i'm surprised everybody doesn't accept that id

say, somebody reminded me that tim geithner changed his signature a little bit when he became treasury secretary because he's going to be on the bill. so maybe. >> let's see it again. bring that picture back, because we just showed what it would look like. that is his signature. that's jack lew. if you want to go to him -- he may be a doctor, maybe he has a ph.d. he's not a medical doctor as far as i know. it's got to be the world's worst signature, looks more like a doodle. >> i wonder how he came up with it. >> assuming that's confirmed. one more quick thing, we showed you the picture that the white house photographer took of the president and his top advisers during one of the fiscal cliff deadline meetings in the oval office, and they swear to us that somewhere hidden valerie jarrett is sitting on the desk, so there is a woman somewhere in this picture, but christian, jack lew, assuming jack lew is named treasury tomorrow and there will be a male chief of staff replacing jack lew, where are the women? >> well, andrea, there's no doubt that women's advocacy groups are critiquing and

tim geithner is going to leave possibly by the end of the month, which means ahead of all of the debt ceiling talks. do you think that would hurt the economy if he's not there to be the one to help sort of, i don't know, keep everything on balance? >> i do worry a little bit about this. there's no clear person who would have been named if he's leaving at the end of the month. the name tossed around most commonly is jack lew. but he's not a clear candidate yet at least. secretary geithner has been very instrumental in talking to the congress for the last couple years about the budget and about the debt ceiling. he was very involved in 2011. he's obviously been very involved the last couple of months. if he leaves, i think we could -- it really depends who takes over for him. but i think we're -- i think we're looking at a lot of big issues to face before march and so it's really going to come down to who that person is that takes over. >> yeah, certainly. have to talk a little bit of football because we always talk about the commercials and the super bowl and how much money they bring
-866-55-press. we reported earlier this week that tim geithner was leaving. he was no longer going to be treasury secretary. barack obama yesterday it leaked out he was going to nominate jack lew to run the treasury department. he hasn't made the official announcement but it looks like jack lew is going to take that over which means we're going to get a new signature on our flat money. because you know, the treasury secretary has a signature. bill is checking to see if he has timothy geithner's autograph there on his dollar bills. >> bill: yes. >> peter: he's got a nice, neat little signature. timothy geithner. there is a whole hubbub now over jack lew's signature. are you ready america? to see that on your flat money. if you can't see it is just a squiggly line of a signature. it looks like someone has had too much to drink and tried to draw a caterpillar. >> that's something that someone could forge very easily. >> peter: it looks kind of like a war shock test. there's jack lew's signature right there. tell me what you see. i see a butterfly. that will be very interesting to see
will be replaced by who knows. tim geithner is out. he'll be replaced by a guy, jack lew, the guy who, if you've been watching the tv over the last day or so, jack lew is the guy who signs his name with what surely looks like a slinky. >>brian: front page "where are the women?" they take a picture and talk about the cabinet of the administration. all the women are being replaced by men. white men too on top of that. let me show you a picture in "the new york times." all we see is valerie jar rhett's leg -- valerie jarrett's leg. >>steve: on december 29 that is the pr-z meeting with ten guys and they're talking about the fiscal cliff. >>brian: could they back up a little. >>gretchen: this is a picture they released the day after, i believe. and you can see valerie jarrett front and center facing the president. then there are two other women who are in the photos. was it a reaction to that original picture? brian, you bring up a good point that there are no minorities -- there's one, i think, in that original picture. it is an interesting discussion because there was so much made in this last p
attain to. >> exactly. >> tim geithner who apparently jeff sessions thinks is a great guy, he was at the fed while this stuff was going down. he was part of the clinton administration that deregulated wall street that allowed the whole thing to go down. and yet now he's got gravitas. all of them are tainted, whether it's by bonuses or policy setting. you know, jack lew is one of the less offensive, maybe totally inoffensive thing -- the only thing people are objecting to is the signature. that tells you something. >> what do you make of, say, jeffrey sachs arguing a couple days ago that there's a problem having wall street people going to the treasury because, you know, you've got foxes guarding the henhouse? >> there are two pieces -- actually now like three or four pieces of financial regulation. treasury deals with part of it, but they also have to deal with all sorts of economic policy including maintaining confidence in the financial markets. that used to be one of the big roles that people like bob ruben were to be able to do. there are multiple roles treasury secretary
president obama tapped current white house chief of staff jack lew to take the place of tim geithner, and we expect that announcement tomorrow. jay carney likely to get questions about that today at the white house briefing set to start at 2:15 eastern now, and it will be live here on c-span2 live coverage, a discussion on this year's budget battle from today's "washington journal." >> host: back at the table is the president of club for growth, talking about the republican agenda for the 113th congress. let me show our viewers the "washington times" from mondays and the headline, g.o.p. shut down and sanity jolt as a way to press need for cuts." when it comes to the next budget battles ahead, republican senators, ted cruz, and others, laying the ground work. are you part of the effort or consulting with them on this? what do you think about it? >> guest: we supported people like cruz and others champions of economic freedom in the senate and other house members. we do that because we want fiscal sanity in washington. we endorse people at the club for growth we think hold a pro-growth view,
